To ideas that don't compromise anyone's health and safety, yes. I'm very intolerant of people who are intolerant of other people based on their mere existance1

I mean, we all want to see ourselves as open minded of course. Who would freely admit to being narrow minded?
But yes, I do believe I am very open minded. If I were not, I wouldn't have traveled so much, I wouldn't have lived in two foreign countries, I wouldn't have gotten married to a foreign girl from a completely different culture and I wouldn't be so easy-going in general. Most types of "otherness" really don't bother me. Whether it's something in the realm of culture, something in the realm of sexuality, in the realm of social issues and social class etc.. In fact, I love diversity and otherness. That's why I once walked along in the Gay Pride parade although I'm not gay, bi or transgender myself. I like these people and I fully support their rights. Otherness is really not something that scares me.
In the case of religion, I agree with you that it is a scam and a tragedy people believe in them. However, as long as you keep it to yourself, it doesn't bother me much. One of my best friends is religious and we've practically never talked about it although we've known for 15 years now. Every time I tried to ask her some stuff, she said she wants to keep it a private/personal issue and not discuss it. Nowadays I quite like that attitude. She can have her faith and I don't get affected by it. There's zero impact on our friendship or on other relationships she has with people.1
